To answer your question
Stalin banned this film because -in his paranoid mind- he viewed it as a metaphor to his own brutal regime.
Sergei Eisenstein did'nt live long after that. He was mysteriously "poisoned".

Fun little trailer for Ivan de Terrible here. Lots of great images for this Russian classic (even though I cant stand it). The narrator in the trailer says the film was banned. By who? The Americans? I dont think so
